Millennial-scale climate variability has been increasingly recognized as one of the most prominent features of the Holocene. However, regional responses, especially in terms of moisture conditions, are poorly documented and understood. Here we present lithologic and magnetic evidence from White Lake in northern New Jersey, USA, to show that low lake levels occurred at about 1.3, 3.0, 4.4 and 6.1 ka (1 ka = 1000 cal. yr BP). The low lake levels are indicated by heterogeneous coarse calcareous…

Centennial to millennial hydroclimatic fluctuations in the humid northeast United States during the Holocene
Abstract Paleoclimate records indicate that the hydroclimate of the northeast United States changed continuously during the Holocene, but the signals of multi-century variations have been difficult
The pattern of Holocene climate change in the arid central Asia: a case study based on lakes
The palaeoclimate records from lakes at the arid central Asian region (ACA) climatically dominated by the Westerly circulation shows synchronous and coherent moisture changes during the Holocene.
Centennial‐to‐millennial hydrologic trends and variability along the North Atlantic Coast, USA, during the Holocene
Geophysical and sedimentary records from five lakes in Massachusetts reveal regionally coherent hydrologic variability during the Holocene. All of the lakes have risen since ~9.0 ka, but multicentury
Major shifts in multidecadal moisture variability in the Mid‐Atlantic region during the last 240 years
The paucity of high‐resolution paleoclimate records limits our ability to extend instrumental data into a longer time‐frame and to better understand multidecadal climate variations in the
CLIMATE DRIVEN CHANGES IN RIVER CHANNEL MORPHOLOGY AND BASE LEVEL DURING THE HOLOCENE AND LATE PLEISTOCENE OF SOUTHEASTERN WEST VIRGINIA
Rivers commonly respond to climate change by aggrading or incising. This is well documented for North American rivers in arid and proglacial regions, but is also true of rivers in unglaciated,

Abstract. The use of the climatic anomaly known as the “4.2 ka event” as the stratigraphic division between the middle and late Holocene has prompted debate over its impact, geographic pattern, and

Millennial-scale storminess variability in the northeastern United States during the Holocene epoch
TLDR
The data show four peaks in storminess during the past 14 kyr, consistent with long-term changes in the average sign of the Arctic Oscillation, suggesting that modulation of this dominant atmospheric mode may account for a significant fraction of Holocene climate variability in North America and Europe.
